Just purchased KBUF last week for the VATSIM Fly in and am really impressed so far. You guys did an excellent job and it's much appreciated- especially since most of my flying is in the SE USA. Just thought that it'd be a good time to buy it since the fly in was going on.

I do have a question- I noticed for the first time ever when requesting permission for take off that the controller stated "Line up and wait" vs. "Position and Hold". I know of no program or update that would have caused my ATC to change to the new phrasing. Is this a feature of the new airport?

Thanks, pleased you like it.

The Line up & Wait command must be caused by something like 'Edit voice pack'. If you have that installed?
Maybe change the options to FAA from ICAO. Its a long time since I used it, so I'm partially guessing.

Line up and wait is the new normal now even in North America.
